Full Text

1 You serve but one Master—
There’s no room for two;
O say “Yes” to Jesus
Who says “Come” to you;
Each short fleeting moment
Records which you choose,—
On this side, win Jesus,
On that side, you lose.

Accept or reject Him,
Be bound or go free;
This moment, this moment
Your last choice may be.

2 Say not, “I’m deciding!”
For until you start
You keep back from Jesus
The trust of your heart—
Resisting against Him
Tho’ longing to yield,—
Say “Yes,” and in Jesus
The way is revealed. [Refrain]

3 Too long you’ve resisted,
Why add to the sin?
‘Tis late for your coming
If now you begin;
How can you oppose Him
By longer delay?
One step, and you enter
The cross-opened way. [Refrain]
